Eric by Terry Pratchett

The Part about the Dragons Was (Mostly) True by Sean Gibson



Your hosts discuss how true the part about the dragon really was as they talk about unreliable narrators and reminisce over D&D (and other tabletop roleplaying game) hijinks. Think Orcs get a bad rap? You’ll probably love The Part About the Dragon Was (Mostly) True by Sean Gibson as well. Your hosts have also made it to Eric in their Journey to the Center of the Discworld, and Lilly got to enjoy the experience of reading a Pratchett book for the first time. Also a potential first for Fiction Fans: your hosts’ notes were almost identical for this book. Don’t worry, it probably won’t happen again. This week’s Pet Peeve Corner brings you: Minutes! They’re probably too precise for what you’re describing!

Gigantic by Ashley Stokes

Your hosts dive into the world of cryptid research in South London with author Ashley Stokes in their conversation about his recent novel Gigantic. Topics in this episode include bigfoot mythology, father/son dynamics, and the tension between science and magical thinking. Also, the word “blobsquatch” is pretty weird (but apparently a real word according to spell check).
